Shop Assistant | Dún Laoghaire, County Dublin | 14 Mar 2013
Fun work environment and interesting job.
Typical day would involve working on the cash register and helping customers. Tidying up. Keeping an eye on merchandise and working in the back room labeling,ironing and pricing merchandise. I learnt how to work as a team, how to work with the general public such as paying customers,dotations, enquiries and defusing a issue. I learnt how to use a register and was responsible for the money the shop made getting to the bank and being lodged. My manager and co manager were very helpful and nice people to work with. I learnt alot about the shop from them and followed their intructions and when I needed to enquire about an item they also helped out. The hardest part of the job was multi-tasking like helping customers,cleaning and tidying. Dealing with the public was my favourite part and it helped my communications skills improve.
Proswork experience and good work environment.
Consnothing i can think of.

Great people, fun work place.
I had a great time working in The Irish Cancer Society shop. It was great work experience that I learned techniques that I will hold onto for future jobs. A typical day at work included tagging clothes and putting price tags onto the items, then bringing the items down to the shop floor and putting them out where they should be. I would then interact with customers if they needed my help. I also helped a worker at the till. The managers at the shop were all really nice and helpful, they made sure I was never standing around and I always had something to do. I loved the environment of the shop, the workers were so friendly and made me feel so welcome. The hardest part of the job was bringing down the boxes from upstairs as they were sometimes quite heavy. The most enjoyable part of the job was tslking to the customers and helping them with whatbthey needed.
ProsLovely Co-workers
Conslifting heavy boxes down the stairs

Great environment to work
Most days are spent picking up clothes from the floor dues to customers just trowing things with out any consideration. I've learned to operate a till do cash counting for morning float. The manager i considered a role model for me she has lit a desire in me to have a career in retail. All of the staff are great i have set up a once a month Thursday night bar outing for the staff and even tho i no longer work there the night still happens i go to catch up when i can as i consider most of the staff i met my friends. I say most because the shop gets volunteers so i don't know a lot of the new staff. For me personally now that i look back on it the hardest part was picking what i was gonna have for lunch each day. It was a joy to work there and my favorite part was on the till during slow times just talking to customers and making them feel welcome.
Prosone hour lunch, nice co-workers

Ambiente lavorativo stimolante e flessibile
La mia tipica giornata di lavoro consisteva nel riordinare il negozio, ordinare per taglia e colore gli abiti, servire i clienti, stare alla cassa e aiutare i colleghi nelle difficoltà. Da questa esperienza ho innanzitutto incrementato notevolmente il mio livello di inglese, arrivando ad ottenere un'ottima padronanza della lingua inglese; ho imparato la gestione del lavoro e la coordinazione nel lavorare tutti insieme. Il mio team era molto piacevole e disponibile, riuscivano a rendere divertenti anche giorni più impegnativi e duri. La parte più difficile era riuscire a gestire in maniera precisa ed accurata la situazione generale quando il negozio era pieno di gente.
ProsAmbiente piacevole e rilassante

Empresa dedicada a ajudar, dinâmica e simples
Com turnos de 4 horas de trabalho por dia, normalmente começando 13 h, eu iria conferir as caixas ou sacos de doações recebidas, separando os artigos em tipos, por exemplo: roupas, brinquedos, livros... Depois dessa separação, eu selecionava as roupas que poderiam ser vendidas das que teriam que ser descartadas, limpava elas, e entregava para a pessoal responsável por etiquetar e determinar o preço. Carregava os sacos de roupas que deveriam ser descartadas para a reciclagem e então caso já não houvesse nada mais a selecionar, iria para a loja ajudar com a organização e com os clientes.
ProsBom ambiente de trabalho

Fun and Productive Workplace
• Responsible for ensuring stock was presented in a neat and orderly fashion and shop was neat and tidy at all times. • Responsible for sorting and recording details of donations and organisation and maintenance of stockroom and regular stock-takes. • Responsible for provision of friendly and welcoming customer service and processing customer transactions. The hardest part of the job was carrying the donation bags downstairs, but I got used to it. The most enjoyable part of the job was chatting to customers and staff alike. It was a lovely place to work in.
ProsCustomer Service experience, retail experience, nice hours, nice staff

Voluntary Work
From the day I started working in the Cancer Society I absolutely loved my job, everyone was always so welcoming and positive and wonderful to be around. My main work I did was managing the till and making sure the shop floor stayed tidy, I also worked in the back of the store, mainly with clothes. There were days when there was a serious amount of work to get through but I work best under pressure so they were some of my best days. Over all it was a wonderful atmosphere to work in, my colleagues worked very well together as a team and the customers were very friendly and polite.
ProsWorking with wonderful people.
ConsI can't think of any.

Fun Workplace
It was a lively atmosphere, the staff are very nice to the customers, i learned many communication skills, as well as retail sales techniques. Probably the hardest part of the job was putting the clothes on the racks, it was hard to tell which had to go where, it was color co-ordinate but there were some clothes that had multiple colors on them so it had hard to tell where they would go. As for the most enjoyable part of the job, it would be doing the steaming, ironing the clothes, getting all the creases out of the clothes, i had a staff member with me when i was doing it, so i had some company t talk to.

Interesting and diverse
A typical day involved designing leaflets, posters etc as well as advertising the charitable events. I learned to work well as part of a team and gained valuable life and work experience. Co-workers were lovely as was management, as they understood everyone and did their best to suit everyone. The hardest part of the job was advertising. Many businesses and media outlets were reluctant to provide free or reduced rate advertising for us, even though we would offer them free advertising on the night. Overall however, it was a brilliant place to work.
Prosnice colleagues, interesting, creative

Shop Assistant | Drogheda, County Louth | 22 Oct 2018
Pleasant work atmosphere and coworkers
I personally work there as a volunteer, so I cannot comment on salary. However, I really enjoy working with them. I work at the Charity Shop in Drogheda, together with some really pleasant people. The shop sells second-hand clothing, and my job consists of preparing these garments for sale by tagging and steaming them, and hanging them in the shop. While the job does require some stamina, it is never too exhausting and does not get boring.
ProsNice and diversified atmosphere
ConsSlightly physically taxing
